Fun times during the holidays

Today was the first week-day that school was out for the holidays.

I'd had so much fun doing a craft day with Logan and Natalie (4 and 2 yrs) that I just knew I had to do another.  Armed with 2X4 craft ideas from the ladies in Battleground
I proceeded to plan a fun day of painting, glittering and gluing.  

I had a great time, I think everyone else did too.  We had two neighbor girls, three grand kids and two dogs who had to watch every step. They ranged in age from 3 years old to 11 years old.  Don't be afraid to plan nice crafts with a group of kids.  I noticed everyone helped the littlest and everyone was devoted to finishing these great crafts!

My biggest job........you won't believe this..........Was washing out paint brushes!

 Hows that for a great paint shirt....raid Papa's t-shirts!

We gave our stars some glitter paint

Can you
believe what happens to a Clorox wipe
after, the youngest, Lilly (3 yrs)
Paints her tree?
It was so nice to have Skylar and Sierra do the clean up!

Joshua is still hard at work! 
We started at 10:30 am and kept crafting until about 5:00pm 
We broke for lunch and to walk one of the dogs!

 Oh Skylar that's a beautiful tree!

Everyone is trying to finish up as the mom's start arriving

A big thank-you to Under my Umbrella for the wonderful crafts.  You are great gals and we really enjoyed that you shared your ideas!

Merry Christmas and host something fun
for children who are out of school, you'll love it and so will they!
